Karin Hauffen

Jay’s favorite programmer.

ABOUT ME

Well, as you may have noticed on the pronunciation guide on People page, despite the misleading spelling of my first name, I am most definitely not a female.
I carry out various programming projects in Jay’s lab.  Before I joined, I was fairly proficient in C and C++, but my skills have greatly improved.  I have also picked up, out of necessity, many other languages we use in the lab, including Matlab, MaxScript, OpenGL,  Presentation, and R.  My other responsibilities include me being the lab’s unofficial tech guru who has taken charge of researching various types of equipment varying from 3D monitors and goggles, eye tracking hardware, and 3D printers. If you’re interested in my other responsibilities and experience, please take a look at my website here.

I am currently working part-time in Jay’s lab as a Research Apprentice sponsored by U.S. Army. I’m also enrolled at Georgia Regents University to continue my education by working toward earning a Bachelor of Business Administration in Management Information Systems. If you’re interested in getting to know me any further or would like to contact me, please do not hesitate (khauffen@gmail. com).
